Miami could have played in the ACC title game at the end of 2012, but self-imposed a second postseason ban that kept the Hurricanes from playing Florida State for the crown.
The Hurricanes need a rushing attack and a scoring defense. Either one could cross them into perennial conference contention, but an improvement in both aspects would be the perfect storm.
After Florida State and Florida jumped back into the national conversation in 2012, having Miami do the same thing the next season would be poetic. All three teams from the Sunshine State contending at the same time would bring back memories of the two decades preceding the new millennium.
All it takes is a set of great safeties and one go-to running back. Look on the field in April. If they're going to emerge before 2013 kicks off, they'll do it during the spring game.
