Not everyone has low expectations for Al Golden and the Miami Hurricanes this season as the team readies for Nebraska this Saturday.

“I think that Al Golden with a quarterback that has a bit of experience this year — I just think they are a much improved football team,” CBS lead college football analyst Gary Danielson said on the Joe Rose Show. “And I think that Nebraska is kind of a work in progress. Coming in with a passing offense to Miami with the athletes and defense put together for a couple years, Miami has got to take that next step this week and show everybody the program is on the right side.

“I like Miami to take the next step. I think they are a sleeper this year in the ACC and I hope so. It’s good when Miami has a good football team. I know Al — I covered Al when he played at Penn State. I think he has the right idea how to build a football team. He hasn’t taken that last step though, there’s no doubt about that.”
