SB Nation's Tomahawk Nation says the Miami Hurricanes have the edge over the Seminoles when it comes to experience:
Over the summer I profiled Miami's program and concluded that the Canes are really falling off in recruiting after dominating FSU on the recruiting trail in 2007 and 2008, and that they have a two-year window to really make some noise nationally thanks to some excellent recruiting two and three years ago. If you haven't read those two pieces yet, please do. One | Two. Miami's talent is found in its juniors and seniors, while FSU's talent (with a few exceptions) is found in its young guys. Miami's players are physically mature and experienced and are not getting acclimated to new schemes. FSU's are not.
