Sports gambling gurus have little expectations for the University of Miami Hurricanes heading into the 2008 college football online sports gambling season. After all, this is a Canes team that went 5-7 last and had one of the worst seasons in the schools sports gambling history.
Sports gambling fans have been appalled over the last few years as the football program at Miami went from being the best in sports gambling to an eyesore for the conference. The low-point last season was no doubt the brawl with cross town rival FIU and every game on the online sports gambling schedule seemed to get progressively worse.
And it capped off its ride to the bottom with a 40 point drubbing in the last sports gambling game ever at the historic Orange Bowl. But that era has passed and the sports gambling future of this team belongs to the youth movement.
With a great majority of this team freshman or sophomores, the young players will get plenty of time when the sports betting action begins in earnest. In fact, starting with the most important position in online sports gambling, freshman will be starting all over the field. The weak link for the Canes over the past two has been QB play.
Highly touted Kyle Wright proved to be awful and the team was stuck behind his rotten play for four seasons with no capable back up on the sports gambling roster. This year the starter will likely be red shirt freshman Robert Marve, a guy that broke every high school record set by a guy by the name of Tim Tebow.
And he’ll have plenty of freshman company with two big and fast freshman receivers likely joining him in the starting lineup. With no shortage of top running backs including Greg Cooper and Javarris James, both future NFL players, the Canes running attack should also be a big strength in the sports gambling action.
Poor play by the offensive line also hampered the team in recent online sports gambling years but this year that unit should be much improved with a year of experience under its belt and talented young players pushing the veterans for sports gambling playing time.
On defense, this side will be as strong as ever, with freshman players starting in the secondary, D-line and linebacker spots before the end of the sports gambling season.
Many online sports gambling fans might be reluctant to bet on this team as there are so many young players, but the type of speed and talent that these players have, there should be little doubt that the Canes are on their way back to the top of the sports gambling world.
