Here we go...

Well, it's finally here: the beginning of another football season. We've awoken from our summer long slumber and are ready to analyze the happenings of the season in annoyingly minute detail.

Thursday night, the Gators' week 2 opponent, Miami, kicks it all off against Charleston Southern. They will be doing so without the services of redshirt freshman QB Robert Marve because Hurricanes head coach Randy Shannon has suspended him for the game. That means the Canes will be going with true freshman Jacory Harris.

I find it hard to believe that Harris would have been the starter right off the bat and most observers thought Marve had the inside track for the job. So Marve's suspension obviously doesn't help the Canes at all. Shannon will have to decide whether to start Harris again against the Gators in Gainesville or go with Marve.

I'm glad we're facing these guys in the second week and not the seventh.


Just saw on the late news that Marve is one of SEVEN players suspended for the opener. Not only that, Shannon announced that Marve would indeed be the starter for the year. That means that when the Canes take the field against the Gators on the 6th of September that Marve will not have taken a snap.

Miami game = slaughter.

I think Hawaii may keep it closer, seriously.

Brandon James with 3 TD's in the first 2 weeks.
