People can hate on the Hurricanes all they want, but when it comes to playing a great out-of-conference schedule, there is nothing the haters can say.
Over the last five years, the Hurricanes have played Oklahoma, Kansas State (twice), Ohio State (twice) and Notre Dame. It doesn't get any easier this year as the Hurricanes will be welcoming one of the best teams in the country in the Florida Gators.
Regardless of who the Hurricanes play this season, they have the team to be competitive in every single game. We should not see a blow-out loss like we saw against the Wildcats and Irish last season.
Here is my power ranking of the Hurricanes 2013 schedule from easiest to toughest.
