Miami Hurricanes Season Prediction, What Will Happen

There’s a chance this change around fast.

Miami has had its mirage moments over the last few years – bulking up big records against mediocre schedules, like in 2017 (one win over Notre Dame aside) and 2020 – only to be falter in the end.

Here’s the possible difference in 2022. Miami should fatten up early, but it will probably get stronger by the time the rough finishing kick comes.

The overall win total might not be massive, but the team will be far more solid than it’s been in years.

The coaching staff and talent are both stronger, the kicking game is among the best in America, the running game should be more effective, and there’s a whole lot of depth to play around with on both sides of the ball.

And the schedule works out well.

Set The Miami Hurricanes Regular Season Win Total At … 8

If Miami can take care of North Carolina, it’ll almost certainly be 4-1 – the loss coming at Texas A&M – to start the season. The ACC slate for a stretch after dealing with the Tar Heels is more than manageable.

At Virginia Tech, Duke, at Virginia, Florida State, at Georgia Tech. 4-1 isn’t asking for the world, 3-2 is more likely, and 5-0 isn’t impossible.

At Clemson will be the big ACC problem, and closing out hosting Pitt will be a huge moment.

There will be enough whiffs to get a double-digit win total, but it’ll be a strong first run under the new coaching staff.

Expect at least eight wins, nine is a strong, attainable goal considering those two road trips to Texas A&M and Clemson.
