Canes must stop Boise State's home win streak before 58

You may be aware that Boise State currently holds a 44-game home win streak.

Should we really just wait and hope some deadbeat WAC team does the deed?

Why shouldn't Miami take things into their own hands and attempt to end the streak before it reaches 58 games?

Boise State has 6 home games remaining on their schedule. Assuming they win out at home, they will sit at 50 consecutive games at year-end. I assume they can't play more than 6 or 7 home games in 2011. Therefore, the season opener 2012 could be the perfect storm.

Take this year's game against Ohio St. which carried extra weight due to the 03 Fiesta Bowl. Now just imagine a single game to defend the achievement of some of the greatest Hurricane teams of all time (1985-1994). Throw in the presumed early season national title implications and you have off-the-charts drama.

Obstacles: Will Boise St want to do it? Heretofore, they have necessarily been willing to take all comers. But if they begin to sniff the home win streak record would they risk it by bringing in a (motivated) big time program?

On the one hand they could take the easy way out, schedule a cream puff and take the streak. But if a tree falls in the woods...? What better way to take that streak than to literally take it from the program that has held it for the better part of past two decades?
