Miami Season Odds

After a lackluster 2008 season, can Randy Shannon turn potential sleeper Miami into a legit national title contender again?

The Hurricanes went 7-6 last year under Shannon and lost to California 24-17 in the 2008 Emerald Bowl. But with a couple of key returning starters, Miami could turn its misfortunes around in ’09.

Offensively, quarterback Jacory Harris is the only experienced signal caller after Robert Marve transferred. Harris was efficient last year, throwing for 1,195 passing yards and he’ll have help, as running back Graig Cooper (841 rushing yards) and wide receiver Aldarius Johnson (332 receiving yards) return as well.

On defense, linebacker Sean Spence (65 tackles, 1 interceptions), defensive end Allen Bailey (5 sacks), cornerback Brandon Harris (1 interception) and defensive end Eric Moncur all return.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING have listed Miami’s odds to win the 2010 BCS National Championship at 26/1. Shannon has himself an extremely young squad, but if Harris can limit his mistakes and produce offensively, the Hurricanes can compete with anyone on any given Saturday.

Looking at their schedule, there are some potential hurdles in the beginning of the season in Florida State, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and especially, Oklahoma. A couple of big wins and the Hurricanes will catapult into national title contention. But in college football, it’s always better to lose early and win late, so even if they do lose a couple games early on, don’t completely burry the ‘Canes.
