Less than two weeks until the season opener multiple Miami Hurricanes websites have examined the position groups. David Lake of Inside U ranked all of the Miami position groups. Canes Warning took a look at the expectations for freshmen at each position group and All Hurricanes ranked the offensive position groups.

Lake ranked from worst to best, wide receivers, tight ends, the secondary, linebacker, running back, quarterback, the offensive line and defensive lines. Each position group was summarized by Lake and why they ranked where they do. Lake used five criteria to determine where each position group ranked.

Brian Smith of All Hurricanes had a different take than Lake. Smith ranked the Miami Hurricanes tight ends fifth among the offensive position groups, followed by the offensive line, quarterback, wide receivers and running backs. Smith also examined“What has, or has not, happened so far during fall camp.”

The Canes Warning rankings examined the expectations of the freshmen defensive line on Saturday after profiling the offensive skill position groups and offensive line on Friday. Several freshmen will make an impact on Miami in 2023. Offensive tackle Francis Mauigoa is the player most likely to have an impact.

Earlier this week John Buhler of Canes Warning’s parent site FanSided interviewed Miami football legend Greg Olsen. Olsen stated of Mario Cristobal that There’s no question in my mind that if he can’t get it done, it can’t get done.” Olsen also commented that the support for the football program and the talent fell off.

Jerry Palm of CBS Sports examined the “Toughest and weakest nonconference schedules entering the 2023 college football season.” Georgia Tech has the toughest non-conference schedule per Palm and Boston College has the easiest. Palm mentions the Miami versus Texas A&M game.
