'Canes unranked in AP, check in at 24 in Coaches Poll

New, 6 comments

UM cracks the Coaches Poll top 25.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Cashing in on losses to previously ranked Boise State and Oregon State,  Miami debuts at 24 in this week's Coaches Poll.

Our take: While this certainly is nice,  this week's game against UF will definitely affect this ranking.  A win would vault UM into the AP, and up likely in the top 15 of the Coaches.  A loss and it is back to square one.  Still it is good to see that coaches around the country recognize Miami as formidable and legitimate contenders in the ACC and Nationally.
