The Miami football team performed strongly in the ESPN S&P plus rankings in 2019. Finding unlikely ways to lose and a poor kicking game somehow kept the Hurricanes in the top 30 in the metric measurement despite a 6-7 season. The return of the majority of the Miami receivers and the offensive line has Miami 23rd for 2020.
The ESPN S&P Plus ratings are based on metrics that include returning production, recent recruiting and recent history. With so many new players stepping into key roles for Miami 23rd has to be considered more than fair.
