Entering the fourth year of his coaching tenure at Miami University, Randy Shannon finally has a team that he feels can win the Atlantic Coast Conference. Jacory Harris will return as the team’s starting quarterback, Allen Bailey returns as the team’s speedy sack-master at defensive end, and Harris’s favorite target Leonard Hankerson is back at wide receiver. The main ingredients for a delicious ACC title run are all there.
So why are they seventh on this list? Miami’s schedule is absolutely brutal this year. Although nine wins isn’t enough for a rabid Miami fanbase, if this team can bring home nine wins again this year, it really will be a good season for Shannon’s Canes.
