This week's games: Miami at Florida State

I am posting two sets of graphs to compare teams that will be playing this week. One set shows how the teams have performed from 1994 to 2008 using the Matrix Hybrid rating. The second shows the trend-O-meter rating from 2008. Enjoy.

These two, once proud programs have been in nose dive mode for most of the last decade-Florida State since 1999 and Miami since 2001 (years in which both teams marked a perfect score in the Matrix Hybrid). It is no small coincidence that Miami saw its stock rise as Florida State was plummeting, and Florida has risen to become THE national power as both programs have fallen to new lows. Rumor has it, though, that Florida State is on the mend, and their performance last year seems to be evidence of that. Shannon has been recruiting well enough to restore Miami to respectability, but we are yet to see the fruits of his labors on the field. I want to see if either team can field a well-oiled offense before I hop on any bandwagons.
