Both teams are definitely great programs that will be fun to watch this year.
Also have to give the Owls credit, they were one of the few notable teams willing to play Miami once word got out that the 1st year Canes were beating everyone they played. (nobody wants to lose to a first year program, it looks bad when it comes to at large selections for nationals)
Yeah, Miami was extremely impressive last season when I saw them and I really want to see them match up with UCF and Gulf Coast. Those will be spectacular games. Coach Toyota and staff do a great job.
FAU has a lot more obstacles than most teams (especially in the way of funding). I know last year the Owls had two defensemen on the roster for some games. This year they seem to have a much deeper roster so that should help them at least stay fresh.
Looking forward to a couple of UM/FAU games in a week or two.
