The Georgia Bulldogs put up a fight against Oregon and did beat Wake Forest, so maybe there's hope for this season. Possibly Georgia isn't as bad as some originally believed? Who knows. What I do know is the Miami Hurricanes are underrated in the eyes of many, and they're off to a fine start at both ends of the floor. I'm rather high on the Canes this season and will be getting behind them often whenever I can get reasonable lines. We're not being asked to lay much here. Give me the Hurricanes.
